Leading up to the election in France, Donald Trump showed clear support for the far-right candidate Marine Le Pen. He never offered an endorsement, but he more than led people to believe he supported Le Pen.
Trump said things like he thought Le Pen would be “strongest on borders, and she’s the strongest on what’s been going on in France.” So if that doesn’t show who he wanted to win, it’s hard to say what else would.
However, when Trump just met with newly elected centrist French President Emmanuel Macron, he said:
“You were my guy.”
Bloomberg News’ Jennifer Jacobs reports:
“Trump denied he supported National Front’s Le Pen in France’s election. “You were my guy” he told Macron today, French officials say.”

Seriously, though, who does he think he’s fooling? Does he think we don’t have documented evidence of what he’s said previously? Does he think we all have goldfish memories?
Either Trump was lying about Le Pen then, or lying to Macron now, and chances are, it’s the latter.
